U.S. Middle East Peace Plan: Controversy Over Economic Conference

June 7, 2019

Episode Notes:

In pursuit of developing a Palestinian peace plan, Middle East envoy, Jared Kushner, is orchestrating an economic conference in Bahrain scheduled in two weeks to explore economic incentives required in the process, particularly for the Palestinians. However, the Palestinians have rejected the conference out-of-hand, leaving the venture at large into question.

Hussein Ibish, Senior Resident Scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington and a weekly columnist for Bloomberg and the National, joins the Warcast to discuss the plan, the conference, and how the incentives have fundamentally changed for those pursuing peace. (13 minutes)
